Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Der Kommentar Murgatroyds bietet eine umfassende, an philologischer Detailfreude kaum zu überbietende Aufarbeitung des Hintergrunds des kommentierten Textes und wird als Standardkommentar zu diesem Buch die erfreulich fortschreitende Kommentierung der Dichtung der „silbernen“ Latinität bereichern." Thomas Gärtner in BMCR, 8.8.2011
